Baked maple-glazed pears

I tried this recipe this morning for breakfast, and it was very yummy. It's a nice way to get a little sweet in the diet that's not going to wreak havoc on the blood sugar levels.

I cut this recipe in half since it was just for me and the hubby. The full recipe below makes 8 servings. Leftovers reheat well in the microwave.

Baked Maple-glazed Pears
4 ripe medium pears
1/3 cup dried fruit (I used dried cherries; options: cranberries, snipped apricots, raisins)
1 T. light pancake syrup product (I used the real stuff, as half a tablespoon isn't much)
1/2 cup pear nectar or apple juice
3 T. chopped walnuts

Cut pears in half, leaving stems intact on four of the halves. Remove cores. Arrange pears, cut sides up, in a baking dish. Top pears with dried fruit; drizzle with syrup. Add pear nectar or apple juice to the baking dish.

Cover and bake at 350 F. for 20 - 25 minutes (I baked mine for 35) or until pears are tender, spooning cooking liquid over pears occasionally.

Sprinkle with walnuts before serving and drizzle with remaining cooking liquid.
